The FAA has added an airport, North Las Vegas (KVGT) testing a new Arrival Alert Notice system and new symbols for airport hotspots. An Arrival Alert Notice (AAN) helps bring attention to higher risk airports and creates situational awareness for pilots by providing a visual graphic of a wrong-surface landing hot spot at airports with a misalignment history. There are now 12 AANs published in the Chart Supplement (faa.gov/air_traffic/flight_info/aeronav/Digital_Products/dafd).

1. Tucson, AZ, Tucson Intl (TUS)
2. Reno, NV, Reno/Tahoe Intl (RNO)
3. Palm Springs, CA, Palm Springs Intl (PSP)
4. San Jose, CA, Reid-Hillview of Santa Clara County (RHV)
5. Rochester, NY, Frederick Douglass/Greater Rochester Intl (ROC)
6. Honolulu, HI, Daniel K Inouye Intl (HNL)
7. Idaho Falls, ID, Idaho Falls Rgnl (IDA)
8. Atlanta, GA, DeKalb-Peachtree (PDK)
9. Dallas, TX, McKinney Ntl (TKI)
10. Minneapolis, MN, Flying Cloud (FCM)
11. Lincoln, NE, Lincoln (LNK)
12. Las Vegas, NV, North Las Vegas (VGT)

Details on the program and information on the new symbols are detailed in the updated Information for Operator (InFO) bulletin 22001, Arrival Alert Notice (AAN) and Airport Diagram Symbols for Wrong-Surface Hot Spots.
